The park offers a variety of boating options for visitors. There is a public boat ramp that can be used to launch personal watercraft into the South River, which leads directly out to Chesapeake Bay. The waters are suitable for kayaking and canoeing as well, with rentals available on-site during peak season. Fishing from boats is also popular due to the abundance of fish species in these waters.
